Cleavage, With A Twist

More

Cleavage

An art project:

In the pictorial book "Cleavage," ample bosoms fill tank tops, are adorned with necklaces, and press against a guitar. However, the cleavages photographed are actually the butt cracks of men and women. (Check out the hirsute bust in a cocktail dress.)

Bethany Fancher, a New York-based artist, invited family, friends and willing participants to model their posteriors in their homes, workplaces and staged sets. The illusions Fancher createswith torsos and limbs in placeare hilariously clever, but also frankly address female objectification and sexuality.

Not to mention the possible evolutionary connection between breasts and posteriors. More images here. Video here. South Park got there first, of course.
